Tradecraft: USA Engages In More Covert Affairs
Deadline reports that USA has already renewed its freshman spy series Covert Affairs for a second season. The pilot for the Piper Perabo CIA drama drew 4.9 million viewers, (including 2.1 million of them in the crucial "Adults 18-49" demographic), making Covert Affairs "the highest-rated scripted cable premiere this year" in that key demo. "It has remained the No.1 cable series of the year among 18-49," reports the trade blog, growing to 2.52 million viewers in that group as of the most recent episode. I'm a few episodes behind, but I loved the pilot and the subsequent installments I have seen have continued to impress me. Read my full review of the series premiere here.
